When the Founders Liberated Iwo Jima

Or ended slavery or invented the automobile or something. Aside from Glenn Beck's schizophrenic paradolia you can't get further from actual history (or math or science) than Michelle Bachmann's  Tea Party History for Dummies:

Bachman, speaking at an Iowans for Tax Relief event, recounted the early “remarkable” America, a nation where “it didn’t matter the color of their skin, it didn’t matter their language, it didn’t matter their economic status.”
“Once you got here,” she added, “we were all the same.”

Yep. And no Indians were hurt in the making of this nation. At least her handlers got ole' crazy eyes to blink once in awhile. My guess is that command was telepromptered every thirty seconds on the button. You can lead a Bachmann to blinking but you can't get her thinking.
